Accreditation Application

The process of seeking accreditation requires the preparation of comprehensive documentation to demonstrate that the co-operative education programs at your institution meet national standards. Once a co-operative education program has successfully passed the accreditation process, the accredited status is valid for six (6) years.

The application has been designed so that you may enter your responses directly within the template and it contains some instructions. Please see How to apply? for additional details on preparing your submission.
